More details of the Mercedes-Benz Gullwing supercar

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2010

From what can be seen from exclusive spy shots the Mercedes-Benz Gullwing is making ready to get into the show areas. Sporting much less disguise, and highlighting 'gullwing' doors that are ready for production, the new representative machine is coming into the process of the last stage of its development.

Captured as it was test running in icy northern Europe, this most current copy is boasting some interesting up till now unseen elements as well as a strip of LED daytime running lights located just beneath the headlights and brakes that are set for production, which highlight big discs that are cross-drilled.

Regarding the body itself, styling is anticipated to be inspired by the first 300SL Gullwing, with a huge Mercedes star placed in the center of the grille.

On the interior, the vehicle receives a paddle shift semi-automatic box, with 6 gears at the very least. No information has been received concerning what powertrain will propel the lead machine, but there are talks of an AMG-sourced turbocharged V8 or even a V10.

Nevertheless, the Gullwing will brag 550 hp - 650 hp, which will mean a sprint of 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in less than four seconds and a maximum speed of 200 mph (320 km/h).

When it arrives in the middle of 2010, just after a world inauguration at the Geneva Motor Show in that year, there is a possibility that Gullwing could even be sold under the AMG marquee. Manufacture is most probably going to be restricted to 6,000 units in two years. GBP 200,000 ($295,150 or EUR 228,240), at least, is the anticipated starting sticker price.
